A Manhattan man left blind in a single eye after being attacked within the subway says the town has did not hold the transit system secure.
Chris Anguisaca, 21, was coming house from a shift at an Amazon achievement middle in New Jersey on Feb. 14, 2022, when a crazed man on the A train suddenly accosted him.
The man approached Anguisaca and a pal and commenced hurling insults, calling him “Mexican,” earlier than lunging at him and stabbing him within the left eye.
“At first he tried to, like, put it in my throat. He tried to kill me,” he mentioned.
The assailant fled the 6 a.m. attack once the train pulled into the Dyckman Street station.
Now Anguiscaca is suing the city, the Transit Authority, and the Metropolitan Transit Authority in Manhattan Supreme Court for failing to keep the subways safe, failing to maintain adequate security cameras, and failing to have trained officers in the system.
At the time of the attack, Anguisaca had claimed cops told him subway station cameras don’t work north of 190th Street, which the MTA has denied.
Anguisaca also alleges the MTA and Transit Authority have failed to control “mentally ill and/or homeless individuals … from being a threat to passengers.”
His is the latest lawsuit to accuse subway authorities of failing to keep the trains safe.
Anguisaca is searching for unspecified damages. The MTA declined to touch upon the litigation.
